1. Becoming most dear to Krsna

    Krsna said:

    As the Supersoul of the living entities, sitting in everyone’s heart, I observe everyone’s activity in every stage and order of life. Regardless of which stage one is in, when I see that one is engaged seriously and sincerely in discharging the duties ordered by the spiritual master, and is thus dedicating his life to the service of the spiritual master, that person becomes most dear to Me.

    From Srila Prabhupada’s Krsna Book, Ch. 80, Lord Krsna to Sudama Brahmana
